Very nice, quiet, campground carved out from the surrounding woods. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions about things to do in the area. However, many sites are small (almost awning to awning). They have some 50 amp sites but most are 30. Our site was 30 amp and the voltage was extremely low even if I had nothing running, worse if using any appliance. Luckily the weather was mostly cool and breezy enough not to require the AC. Wi-Fi was terrible. We stayed 7 days and it was down approx. 70 to 80 % of the time and when it was up it had the speed of the old dial up process. The Wi-Fi is provided by an outside company, so I think it is time for them to find another service provider. We would probably not return to this campground because of the electrical voltage/Wi-Fi issues. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice sized sites wind through the forest. Loop configuration so you don't get that parking lot feeling. Didn't give a 9 or 10 since the water heater for our bathroom was down for the first 5 days of our stay. I understand it has been down for over a month.

Hardly what I would call a resort. The restrooms are basic and unclean with cobwebs in toilet stalls and not cleaned in the four days we stayed here. The Wi-Fi was nonexistent with plenty of excuses blaming connection company. The sites were uneven and we were made to move when we extended from 2 - 4 days. We paid for the site they advised would be the only one we would fit in (45 ft) a day in advance but found they gave it to another person the night before we had to move. When we advised them of this, they gave no apologies and abruptly told us just because we paid for the site it is not guaranteed - funny as we had receipt for that site. We found another site and moved. That night the police attended the neighbouring caravan at 12.30 AM. Tried to buy stock at office but the staff do not know how to use he computer system and gave up with long line behind me as I was embarrassed. Would not recommend this park unless you are not using restrooms and happy to camp in trees which stop your awning opening. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We love the rustic feel of this park, and even though thick with tall, mature pine trees we managed to find a spot with a view of the southern sky for our satellite dish. They also provide cable TV at most sites. Our site was pretty level. Very friendly staff. Not far from the "Y" and retail stores, restaurants, etc. We stayed in Section "E" in site 426. Would stay here again. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Resort? Not even close. This is an older campground - and not kept up very well. Arrived around 6pm and no one was in the office - a note posted on the door told people to pick a spot and check in in the morning. Only had 30amp service -- water spigot handle broke when trying to turn on the water. Could not get Tailgater to pick up signal due to tall pines. Didn't have any interest in using other facilities at all. Would not return again. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Just love the smell of pine needles warming in the California sun. The ambience made me feel like a kid at camp. The grounds are huge. In November I could unleash my Lab and roam through the trees. Raley's was .1 mile away, wonderful. Only had electricity, in winter mode. Couldn't get satellite to peek through the canopy. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Spent three weeks here and had a great time. Verizon cell coverage a tad weak, but with booster would work well. Wi-Fi was very spotty at times and slow. Swimming pool was closed upon our arrival due to remodel.....disappointing! All utilities worked well and it was a very peaceful stay. We will return. Our rate was Thousand Trails Zone Pass rate.

We found this campground to be one of our favorites. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. It is located in the beautiful South Lake Tahoe forest before you get to the Y intersection. Because it’s in the forest, it is difficult to position your RV between the trees and you’re on dirt, not a pad. Once you’re positioned correctly, I found the sites to have lots of room. It is close to the small Lake Tahoe airport so you get some aircraft noise during the day. If your site is in the areas with tents (sections A & E), the bathrooms and showers were very busy especially in the mornings, however in the RV areas (sections G & F) they weren’t too busy. While we were there, they finished fixing the pool so it will be open again in 2 weeks. The playground is great for kids. On Friday nights they show a movie and for a small cost on Saturday and Sunday mornings they have a pancake breakfast available. During the week there are various activities including a karaoke night. We enjoyed our camping experience here because of the room between sites, the forest experience and the activities offered. Our price reflects a Good Sam discount and a discount for the pool being closed for repairs. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

First of all, DO NOT camp here over the 4th of July! Secondly, expect hordes of people and noise after quiet hours. This facility mixes tent sites with RV sites, which really made for a bad experience for us. We stayed there four nights -- mainly because no refunds are issued, despite the reason. We made a reservation in January for a specific site; however, upon check-in our site was given to someone else. There were many complaints from others that were overheard in the office. No security in the resort after midnight. Their 'rules' aren't enforced, i.e., number of persons allowed in one site (up to twenty-five were counted on two separate adjoining sites next to the first one we were assigned). After much frustration and lack of two nights sleep, we were reluctantly assigned another site that was way on the other side of the park and it was much quieter there. My advice is to make your reservations for the Lake Tahoe area very early, and certainly not here! We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for a week. Checked "not clean" on baths and showers as they are old and need to be redone. Don't look up in the light fixtures as the bugs are plentiful! Did use the showers a couple of times; not much privacy and don't know how often they were cleaned. Trash bin outside was overflowing and didn't see much in the way of maintenance over the week. Here's the thing: make sure you check out your site before you set up. They stuck us right in the middle of a motorhome and 5th wheel with NO privacy. The park is huge, and we would have changed sites but hubby was tired, and we didn't realize how close we were to our neighbors until after we set up. There were plenty of more private spots available; it was our fault for not requesting a change. Noticed as the week went by, they continually did this with each unit coming in. Guess they thought everyone wanted a close neighbor! The pool was closed, area was dirty and not well kept. Management was friendly enough; laundry was OK; park was quiet overall & not near enough to main 89 for traffic noise. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a huge RV park with an excellent location in South Lake, Tahoe. There is a swimming pool, cable TV, nice pull throughs for set up. Great dog walks, close to shopping, the lake, and many site seeing spots. Unfortunately, the bathrooms are filthy every morning. They need to be cleaned early before the morning crowd shows up. The water is not drinkable. It has a strong chlorinated smell and taste. We really like this location, but because of the water and bathrooms we may not stay again. This was the most we paid for a site so far on our trip. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tahoe Valley Resort - this is a campground. Trees, fire rings (in most spots, otherwise you are charged $2 a day to rent one) dirt and traditional camp tables. So this is the basis for the review. The premium spots are on the outside of each loop providing for no campers behind you. Nice. Some of these back up to campground amenities such as volleyball courts, etc. Some back up to the road, but most back up to the forest, nicer. Some are pretty narrow, some are nice and wide, some even allowing room for an additional tent. We got lucky and had a beautiful spot, forest behind, plenty of room to spread out, and a fire ring. Our spot had almost enough space between the trees to extend both slides and the awnings. Some spots appeared to be somewhat narrower. The office staff did a nice job of understanding our needs and matched us with a good spot. This is the best place we have stayed in South Lake Tahoe. The biggest downside was the helicopter noise. It is random, as it is emergency for the hospital down the road and one night was pretty constant until 1am. Other nights, none. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The location was convenient, close to the lake and parks. Since we were there in the "off" season, I think some of the cleaning was not kept up. Example: plastic bags in the pet area, litter around the camp areas. When I called to make the reservation, the operator wanted to charge me $46; on the website, the price was listed as $30. When I paid the second night at the park, the price was $30. It looks like during the summer season there are lots of activities at the park: basketball, pool,etc. Lots of shade. I thought it was a deal for $30. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Good park. The manager is very friendly and helpful. The internet is through tengo. It was decent. The park is spread out pretty well, and offers much shade from trees. It was snowy when we were there, and they had plows coming through tho clear the streets. There are a ton of shops, restaurants around the park within walking distance or a short drive. There are full hook-ups and the spots are a good size. There is a dog walk area with plenty of room for the pups to sniff around. They have many washers and dryers in their laundry room, and it is decent. Some are older and do not work as well, so it takes some trial and error to figure out the dryers that aren't working as well, but overall, decent facilities. Overall, good park. We would recommend.

You have plenty of options here, from tent sites to premium sites. Weekend rate is higher also. As to the campground, it is well located, has many shaded sites, some more difficult to get into than others. Good power, water and sewer, some sites with cable TV. We like it here as far as the campground goes. The staff on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. We have yet to meet a "competent" office person here, from manager down! Watch your billing closely and if you want adjoining sites, make sure they make notations on your reservations. The common thread here is to lay off any and all mistakes made on another person up to and including you, the customer. Its NEVER their fault!! And even if it is, NO accommodation is made in your favor. While I "like" this campground and will return, I find the attitude of some, out of the realm of Good Customer Service! I can't possibly indicate the issues encountered here but needless to say, a letter to Encore is forthcoming! We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.
